Karma & Divination

Recently I heard someone claimed that he won’t give any advice in a tarot reading, for that will take he a role in client’s life and make him sharing client’s karma.

It’s a surprising statement because most of tarot readers I know that we do a reading for gaining information and guidelines. Also, in Chinese tradition, many ancients agrees that “to seek fortune and avoid misfortune” is the reason we use divination tools.


There is a tendency among tarot readers that we use tarot for gaining insight and self-knowledge rather than prediction. Because we all have free will to change ourselves. Seemingly, that one extents this idea to extreme, so readers should not make any effect to querents. For example the tarot reader guides them, or he would rebound something so bad.

But don’t we made any effect while we are just starting to read for a querent? Querents put their trust (more or less) in us, listen to what we view in these cards. Whether the reader suggest s/he or not, they will hear something they won’t hear from others, whatever it’s an insight or prediction or comfort or so, they will try to make it sense, consider it, judge it, or refuse it. How can this course make no effect to them?

In Hinduism, the word Karma means action, work, or deed, it’s neutral. Mostly we use this word to describe the action we do and its reaction. Therefore everything that we have ever thought, spoken, done or caused at every moment is karma. In Buddhism, karma is intention and it can be manifested through the ways of physical actions, speech and mental thoughts. It’s also neutral but Buddha focus on avoid those evil karma. The evil vocal karma is further divided into curse, lying, flatter, and discord.

According to these, I may say, the reader creates HER/HIS OWN KARMA while doing any styles of reading, or the reader creates no evil karma as long as s/he says something nice and true.

As I know, there is no information about “sharing someone’s karma” in Hindu tradition. I tried to google it and found a Q&A about that.

There are groups of Buddhists (and others) who believe that merit can be shared (or even transferred to the dead). There are subtle differences between karma in general and merit specifically, but that’s a discussion for another time. Personally, I’m not a believer in the sharing of merit, but others are.

I think it looks more likely a traditional Chinese theory that all members of a family share their fortune and misfortune. Our elder generation developed it from the law of individual karma to explain why a bad man still have a good life. They told us, because they haven’t consumed fortune accumulated by their ancients out, seemingly they had no punishment for their vice.

However, this theory limits the karma transfers among family or bloodline. Usually, a divination consultation happen between two people who don’t have close relationship. Could it build a bridge to transfer or share one’s karma to another? Remember also, both Hindu and Chinese karma theory are neutral. So which kind of karma, good or evil, it would transfer? What’s your opinion?


That man also says, when the querents follows the suggestion which the reader give to her/him, the querents will lost her/his free will! They should do ANYTHING with their own choice so the reader should not intervene their own life.

To think about making a business deal, when someone goes to a diviner, s/he seeks for suggestions with her/his own free will, and the diviner should fulfill this will. In the realm of horary astrology or lenormand reading, diviners do not reject the concept of prediction or fortune-telling so much. Customers come to seek true situation and the best solutions, that’s why a lot of diviners provide answers like “buy this is a good choice, choose it” or “this guy don’t love you honestly, but there is another opportunity, maybe two or three months after, keep patience and waiting.” Have the diviners’ suggestions injured the querent’s free will? I don’t think so. And I’m wondering another big question — does human have free will or not…? But we have no space and time to discuss it.

I believe that if people know what the weather will be tomorrow, they can change their plans or prepare more enough, and this is where free will exists. Keith E. Stanovich in his The Robot’s Rebellion appeal human not to be enslaved by mimic and gene but to reflect them by our higher rationality. I think its opinion also work well in our subject. There are so many stuffs which have power to over our will. Our culture, our habits, our social relationship, things what we have been involved, they define us, they build us, they limit our future from present, but they have no idea to benefit us if we can’t understand them with awareness first. This understanding enhances our free will.

Providing a guidance doesn’t mean the diviner should force her/his querent to take the recommended choice. It can be a consensus after an equal discussion with all predictions or insights they gained from a reading. On the other hand, many tarot spreads give us a position of advice to use, so the guidance sometimes doesn’t come from reader but the cards themselves. It will be better and more ethical to reflect if we readers be too arrogant, than rejecting giving any suggestions rigidly.


There is another idea that diviners must get rewards for reading, or the clients will be punished by karma, because divination is divulging the secrets of universe. That guy also mentions it, but he thinks it’s not able to pay off all karma by merely money after the karma is transferred.

How can we reader divulge the secrets of universe with just a pack of cards(or just a drawing of horoscope chart)? If so, the universe is vulnerable enough, I may say.

There are many tarot book tell me “divination” means “to talk with Gods”, and I think “the Gods(or high self or universe or whatever)” have right and power to keep something secret. We keep curious and honest and try our best to touch the limitation of our divination tools, but there are always things beyond that.

Sometimes I vaguely feel the cards don’t tell me what will actually happen but what they “think” it best for me to know or to do, even though I believe it’s a hard or bad path. Sometimes I have a feeling that the universe might speak a white lie to me. I’m not sure about this, maybe just I made something wrong in those readings. Rachel Pollack said (as my friend told me), the tarot will always gives the cards most fit you to understand in your own reading. I’m probably unable to accept this. There are some others’ reading in which they read the cards well but I can’t. However, there are some my own reading in which I can’t make sense of the cards at all,  does it mean tarot gives the cards doesn’t fits me?

Then, if readers have no ways to reveal what we shouldn’t know now or ever, we have no ways to be punished for this reason. What do you think? Does divination have any other qualities to make it different and magical so that we should take care about it and never forget the law of three times or karma?

So what do you think about these issues? Let me know!



At 13th Feb., I did a magick to urge one man to repay my money. I got acquainted with this man by gambling. He borrowed totally 200 yuan from me in twice. It’s not a big deal so I don’t care about it very much but just have a try. The first time I lent him was 16th Jan.


At first magick, I simply cast a circle with figure on air, called upon the guardians of the four quarters and Goddess & God. Then I petitioned my intention, and I tensed my muscles a few moment, imagine this physical energy was my intention, which was released to the Universe when I relaxed my muscles. And so it was over, I thanked for spirits and erased the circle. After then, I divined by astro-dices, the answer was the Moon & Taurus & 12th House. The Moon was Lord 2 and placed at 12th, I read it as a negative result as well as my friends. 继续阅读



Some days ago, I read a ritual used to create a mercury talisman. As a model, I created a talisman for improving my finance today. For in my natal chart the Mercury conjuncts the M.C., and the Jupiter and Venus are both ill-dignity. At the same time, I wish to earn profits from Mercurial methods including writing, translation, divination, and gambling.

护符的设计,取了诗篇118:16。 “耶和华的右手高高举起; 耶和华的右手行了大能的事。”(护符上写的拉丁文版。)并加上了黄金之书给出的天使符文。与诗文呼应,且与目的呼应,我画了星币一的图像,神的右手赐予金钱。

I used Psalm 117:16  “The right hand of the Lord is exalted; the right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly.” (I writed it in Latin around the talisman.)Also I placed the name of angel of this Psalm from LE LIVRE D’OR. Echoing the psalm and my purpose, I drew a image from Ace of Pentacles, which is a right hand holding a coin. 继续阅读


不知道在贴吧的哪里看到有人推荐《sacred seven》,然后就去看了。其实以往我很少会听别人安利动画剧集的,话题番也只是可能会看看而已。但是这次,好像冥冥之中有种指引一样,邂逅到了这么一部动画。其实几个月前也吃过一个安利,《精灵守护者》,也是挺好看,但就是没有这一次这么入迷。跑去查了一堆有的没有的资料,然后p站d站搜刮同人图……

我主要用在Dota 2 线下比赛上,因为在比赛设定上,它相对更适合预测。它用到赛事天象盘,所以必须有时间和地点,那么电竞线上赛就无法使用了。而由于天象的变化,虽然它设计了很多因子来增加具有微小时间差的星盘的差异度,但对于常规赛、海选赛、小组赛等等每天都有五六场比赛,同一时间在不同城市有两三场一起打的这些比赛,用起来效果也还是很不好。Dota 2 因为可以等到比赛开始bp后才下注,所以适合预测。目前我的经验是,一场BO3,第一场录像所显示的比赛开始时间,就是第一场bp开始时间,可以预测整个BO3的结果。


这套技术因为结果反馈很明确,只有谁输谁赢,最多加上平局,三种。目前反馈是,对于nba、英超常规赛,预测率大概只有一半;对于Dota 2 的线下大赛,七成左右,八成不到的准确率。






















换言之,塔罗占卜过程中,我们经由不同的道路,这道路是我们主观选择的,去到了同一个目的地,即客观的结论。无论我们是给自己占卜,还是给别人占卜,都一样。 继续阅读

第一个问题很好回答,那就是“魔法”确实存在,过去存在,现在存在,将来仍然会存在。我并不是在胡编乱造或信口雌黄,因为我有无数证据可以证明这一点。在西方中世纪的时候,魔法是以手稿的形式广为流传的,这些手稿现在仍然保存着。所以,这些手稿的存在,就是证明魔法确实存在的铁证。就算是在现代,也有众多的魔法书籍出版,如果在英美亚马逊上输入magick进行搜索,会找出数之不尽的相关书籍。 继续阅读

What does my father think about me?

Mary posted a spread last month, I thought it’s interesting to have a try. Therefore I did a reading last night with it. Originally, the spread is used to explore one’s feelings about another in a romance. But the question I ask here is of my family relationship.


I used the Sliver Witchcraft Deck, my significator is queen of swords and the cards I drew were :
his feelings – knight of chalices (R),
his thoughts – the devil,
what beneath him – 3 of chalices,
what he likes – 5 of wands (R),
what he dislikes – knight of wands (R).
